War Dept. history of the 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional).
MERRILL’S MARAUDERS ( February-May 1944), American Forces in Action Series, Government Printing Office, 1945. 117 pages, illustrated, one foldout map.
This is the history of the 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional) that was part of Allied operations in North Burma, in the Spring and Summer of 1944. The history was drawn by personal accounts, as official records were not maintained due to the mobility of the unit. Merrill’s Marauders operated against the Japanese, behind their lines. The intelligence officer was killed during its campaign, and other records kept by this unit were lost while in action.
Very good condition.
